Topic: Monitoring with Nagios XI

Every computing device should (A) run certain software and (B) be configured a certain way. For instance, a mail server should (A) run mail software such as Postfix and (B) have enough CPU power, RAM, and hard disk space to meet users' needs. A monitoring server watches remote devices to make sure that these conditions are met.

Nagios Core is an open source program that is widely considered an industry standard for monitoring software because of its age and straightforward design. Nagios XI is a commercially-supported version of Nagios Core that includes additional features intended for use in enterprise environments.

This presentation will related experiences implementing Nagios XI in a small business infrastructure at MIM Software, Inc. and go over how you can use Nagios XI to monitor your personal infrastructure as well.

Meeting Minutes

To be added.
